Eagles Roster Cuts: Max Jean Gilles Cut After Andrews Trade Comes Too Late

The Eagles’ trade of Stacy Andrews to the Seahawks came too late for the 6pm deadline so they had to cut Max Jean-Gilles to get themselves to the 53 man roster limit.

Since Max is a vested veteran, he does not have to clear waivers and is free to talk to other teams. However, the Eagles said that they hope to sign Max back as early as tomorrow. Eagles GM Howie Roseman said that when he told Max what they had to do that Max said he wanted to remain an Eagle. So in all likelihood he’ll be back by Monday.
